1996 Volkswagen Cabrio Question: It Wont Start

 

Question

Visitor, 2.0L 4 Cylinder, Newburgh, NY, June 18, 2010, 13:26

I recently let the battery die due to age and lack of use, when I replaced it I had hoped to just turn the key and have it start like it did last fall. All of the electronics seem to be working but i get absolutely nothing when i turn the key, not so much as a click. Any ideas? Could this be alarm related? I really cant afford to take it to VW right now and i hate to waste the good weather.

    Check the battery terminals for corrosion and make sure they are clean and tight
